At the onset, basic tools and equipment would include (but not be limited to):

  • basic electronic tools & equipment (side cutter, screwdrivers, soldering station, DVM);
  • a dummy load wattmeter;
  • frequency counter;
  • RF Voltmeter;
  • SWR meter;
  • variable regulated power supply;
  • AF/RF signal generator;
  • Spectrum Analyzer (would be nice but not a necessity).
A copy of the service manual or at least a schematic diagram with voltage readings would be very helpful. Repairs would involve sectoring the handheld into:
  • logic/controller circuitry;
  • RX section;
  • TX section;
  • built-in power supply/regulator circuitry.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Low battery on a tk3202 two way radio

Hi Patrick,

Are you using rechargeable Ni-Cad batteries?

If so, buy Li-ion Batteries, Ni-cads have a memory and will recharge from last charge only, rather than fully charge.

Lithium Ion Li-ion batteries don't have memory issues, and therefore will recharge fully.

These are available as rechargeable types so, look for the rechargeable types.

I hope this has been helpful.

Best regards,

It is likely your volume potentiometer has gone bad, and needs replaced. The best solution to shut the radio off and save your batteries is to remove the batteries when you are not using the unit, until you can get it repaired or replaced.

Do not use any spray cleaners in the volume potentiometer, as this can cause a harmful residue. If you try anything, consider canned air.

Best regards.

How do i program my kenwood tk260

You'll need the Kenwood serial cable and software to program this radio. Your best bet would be to contact a Kenwood Customer Service Representative directly. You should have the the radios in front of you when you call so that you can answer questions about them instead of having to call back, etc.

Kenwood contact information can be found here. The TK-260 radio falls under the "Land Mobile & Business" category.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

Software is needed to program the radio as well as a special cable for your computer. The software is not typically easy for the inexperienced.

Look in your telephone directory for a local Kenwood 2-way radio dealer near you and they can tell you what you need to do and how much it will cost. They will be able to sell you the parts you need.
